It was the world's first multilateral development bank, and was funded through the sale of World Bonds. Its first loans were to France and other European countries, but soon lent money to Chile, Mexico and India to build power plants and railways. By 1975, the Bank also lent money to countries to help with family planning, pollution control and environmentalism.

India has borrowed around US$ 65.8 billion from the World Bank so far. In 1958, the Bank played an important role in establishing ‘India Aid Club’ for providing specific economic assistances to India. It has now been renamed as ‘India Development Forum’.
